BNZ KiwiSaver scheme member has passed away

Should a BNZ KiwiSaver Scheme member pass away, the balance of their BNZ KiwiSaver Scheme account will become an asset of their estate once their personal representative, or other specified person requests payment. We have a specialist team that will work with you to assist you through the process.
